2012 Reading Challenges

What to do, what to do? I did miserably on my reading challenges this year, my own and all the others I signed up for, even though they were for the type of books I read all the time! The only one I finished was the Mystery and Suspense Challenge hosted by Book Chick City, and that probably doesn't really count because while I read the books, I haven't gotten reviews for all of them posted. I know, there's technically still time, but the likelihood that I'll get them done is slim to none, especially this time of year!

Even so, I get that little thrill of excitement at the idea of NEW challenges for a NEW year, getting to start all over with a clean slate! I tell myself that I shouldn't join, that it's too much pressure etc., but then I think, okay, but if I don't, then I have to wait another whole year before I can join again! The whole point is to keep you reading, right? Right!

Here are the ones I'm considering, and I'll do formal posts later if I decide for sure:

Book Chick City has a bunch:
The Horror and Urban Fantasy Challenge
The Mystery and Suspense Challenge
The Speculative Romance Challenge
There are others, so be sure to check out the right hand sidebar when you visit!

Workaday Reads is hosting the 2012 E-book Challenge

BaffledBooks/Adventures of 2.0 is hosting the 2012 Speculative Fiction Reading Challenge

Romance Book Junkies is hosting the 2012 Historical Romance Challenge

Luckily a lot of these will overlap. I'm going to mull it over for a few more days before committing!

  1. I don't commit myself to too many challenges in case I can't accomplish them. I just try to read the pile of books I've chosen. If I can't, well, at least I've tried. :)
